The 2013 Wimbledon Championships will go done as the year of the upsets.

Some upsets, like Rafael Nadal losing in the first round, were more shocking than others.

Other upsets, like Sabine Lisicki's win over Serena Williams, were more thrilling than others.

What if Serena Williams broke Sabine Lisicki to go up 4-0 in the third?
